St Hugh of Lincoln is often depicted with a swan, because he was friends with a swan. The swan would follow Hugh around, eat from his hand, and reputedly attacked people who threatened his saintly human BFF. For this reason, the best pictures of St Hugh are the ones where the swan looks like it’s about to fuck you up. Like, massively.
MESS WITH ST HUGH AND HIS SWAN WILL END YOU.
HEY NOW THIS IS EXCELLENT CONTENT
Are… are we not going to mention the tiny Jesus/angels/whatever they are in his cups? Anyone? No? Okay.
